liquid organic carbon can be used instead of co2 right?

Im thinking about starting a supplementary 10 gallon because my snails are reproducing. The problem is that I don’t have another heater. Do mystery snails need a heater? The pair I have in my 20 gallon have heat. I could also use a germination mat underneath the tank top. I’m also looking for suggestions for fish for the colder tank. Minnows maybe?

>the concept of invasive species
On what timescale? :)

All species were invasive as some point.
>>
>>3215525
you don't understand basic ecology, go back to school.

invasive animals are the result of humans introducing them en masse, this doesn't happen in nature, ever, low numbers of exotic animals aren't invasive.
>>
>>3215525
>All species were invasive as some point
No they weren't. Species slowly expanding their range over millennia does not count as being invasive. The ecosystem had time to adapt to the new presence. Humans bringing a truckload of random animals and plants from overseas and letting them go to fuck up the ecosystem is invasive.
Sure, in a million years or so the ecosystem will adapt to having feral cats and Norwegian rats and rock doves everywhere, but that doesn't mean we should condone them because "oh it won't matter in the long run :)"
>>
>>3215534
>Sure, in a million years or so the ecosystem will adapt to having feral cats and Norwegian rats and rock doves everywhere

it won't, ecosystems only gradually adapt over time, if foreign species are introduced in large enough numbers nothing will adapt to them, they'll merely go extinct.
